  •  Putting SERIOUS effort behind Davis (Kansas) (8+ / 0-)

    I, like a lot of other Kansans look at the numbers and we know that while this is an uphill fight, do NOT write Kansas off.  There are a lot of hard workers who are going to put a lot of hours in behind Davis.   He's an eloquent, bright, timely politician who comes at the right time, when our state is suffering under a governor that is universally unpopular (latest polling: 36% approve of Brownback).  

    But to out of staters, I'd say: HELP is appreciated.  Dollars go much farther in Kansas.   The governors race here will cost less then a House of Reps race in most states.   The budget fundraising targets are sickeningly low to handle the whole state.

    So, if you've got it, a little bit extra helps

    •  Is Brownback still controversial there? (1+ / 0-)

      BTW, Dems got former Republican Sen. Jean Schodorf running on their side for Secretary of State against Kobach.

      •  Unfortunately for Schodorf (5+ / 0-)

        We already had a friggin SoS candidate, Randy Rolston, who’s rich as hell and was gonna drop $1 million to take down Kobach. I’m kind of annoyed with her right now--why couldn’t Schodorf run for state Treasurer or something? Still, she does have a better profile since she’s a former elected GOP official. So I guess, for once, Kansas Democrats will have an actual primary with 2 credible candidates.
